Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 8th, 1956. Due to poor attendance, The Mickey Mouse Club Circus, an attraction running since November 1955, closes. The 1st major addition to Disneyland, the circus was held in a tent (which was set-up in the area that later will house the Fantasyland Autopia). Capitalizing on the success of the Mickey Mouse Club TV series, the 75-minute circus show featured a cast of well-known Mousketeers in various roles. To watch a clip from the show: http://is.gd/HzIeBn do you remember this attraction? ✨ Also on this day in 1962, The Chicken Plantation Restaurant, in business since the park's opening day, closes in Frontierland. The space occupied by the restaurant is needed for the construction of New Orleans Square. Do you remember this restaurant?
I think I was being conceived about then. Ewww I shouldn't have thought about that! - DisneyGrandma   653.9 #247 1-8-13 11:02AM Like(3)  Reply
Oh my goodness! DisneyGrandma bringing the funny today! 😂 Go to a happy place. Hope you feel better now. 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 2:45PM
Both before my time. But I do still have a crush on Annette Funicello. Wow! The Tom Sawyer's Island rafts sure haven't changed! Thank you SMK! Love your posts! - IMissDisney   1195.5 #108 1-8-13 10:11AM Like  Reply
How much Skippy peanut butter did you eat back in the day? - ScooterMike  1961.4 #59 1-8-13 10:26AM
I loved Skippy and I loved those commercials! - IMissDisney  1195.5 #108 1-8-13 10:29AM
I do believe Annette may be in that clip I posted....👆 But she was very young. I take it she did a peanut butter commercial? Lol before my time...👶 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 10:33AM
Yes! I spotted her in the clip. And the Skippy commercials with Annette were from the early to mid '80s.. I don't think that's before your time SMK. - IMissDisney  1195.5 #108 1-8-13 10:40AM
Well, I wouldn't have been very young, lol. Don't think I started watching tv till I was at least 5 or 6 MyPark. 😂 I thought that was her in the clip! Cool! - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 10:45AM
Fabulous pictures. Great link. I do remember the Chicken Plantation but not the Mickey Mouse Club Circus. - Tealtownfan   852.2 #171 1-8-13 10:22AM Like  Reply
Thanks Teal! Can you enlighten us about the menu? I would love to know what they served besides chicken. 😊 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 2:42PM
I only remember having fried chicken, sorry.( that was a very long time ago) - Tealtownfan  852.2 #171 1-9-13 8:41AM
No worries! I'm sure it was memorable chicken! 😉 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-9-13 8:48AM
Very cool. Thanks. - RickChavez   3238.0 #28 1-8-13 10:33AM Like  Reply
I don't think I've ever heard of that Circus before, thanks for the fun info! 😊 - MinnieMousewife   731.6 #208 1-8-13 11:02AM Like  Reply
No? Well awesome! Glad you got to hear about it then! Hope you had a lovely day sweetheart! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 4:26PM
I never heard of this before! Thanks for sharing your knowledge! - LaPearleNoir   1172.8 #111 1-8-13 11:29AM Like  Reply
😂 It's not my knowledge silly, just sharing my daily readings. But thanks for being so sweet. 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 4:27PM
Well, your daily readings are making you knowledgable! 😂😂😂😘 - LaPearleNoir  1172.8 #111 1-8-13 5:42PM
You finally stumped me! I've heard of both, but these are both before my time! - Gia   801.8 #182 1-8-13 2:04PM Like  Reply
Naw, I didn't stump you doll. Doesn't count if you weren't around yet. 😉😘 - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 4:28PM
Yay! Finally something before my time! LOL. It seems kind of funny that they would scrap that circus after less than two months. I guess once you know something isn't working, no point in dragging it out. - MeridaFanHasNoAP   3248.1 #27 1-8-13 2:21PM Like  Reply
Exactly! Disney seems to be pretty good at paying attention to what "sells" 😉 👋 hope you are well my dear! - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 4:37PM
Wow! Amazing the changes Disneyland has gone through! Thanks!! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint   3905.9 #23 1-8-13 2:48PM Like  Reply

Wow I did not know about that must've been popular back then if it still existed i'd watch it! Thanks!! - Goofy24   174.0 #2184 1-8-13 4:33PM Like  Reply
A 75 minute circus show is a long one! Not surprised it wasn't well attended. Thanks for the cool info SMK!! - LilSterner   4420.0 #19 1-8-13 9:06PM Like  Reply
Walt had a thing for the circus, I give him credit for trying. 😊 Thanks hun! - Duchess_SMK  5551.2 #14 1-8-13 9:53PM
